Very effective at attracting hummingbirds, Trumpet Creeper is a flowering deciduous vine that can climb to 40 feet. The red- colored, trumpet-shaped flowers bloom in mid-summer and are a favorite of the Ruby-Throated Hummingbird. The flowers will also attract insects, which in turn attract insectivorous birds. Note that Trumpet Creeper is a very aggressive vine and is somewhat notorious for taking over gardens.
